Help choosing our two base areas

Jump to last reply

My boyfriend and I will be traveling to Switzerland April 27-May 4, 2011. We both love being in the countryside (not big city people), hiking, castles, adventure sports, etc. We would like to see as much as possible in this limited time, but have read that it is best to have two bases. We are definitely planning three days in the Berner Oberland area. I've read in other posts that some cogwheel trains are going to be closed from the 25th-30th. Due to this reason I'm thinking we should do the Berner Oberland area last. Which leads me to the question of where our second base should be. My first thought is Vevey (interested in Château de Chillon), but not sure what else would be best for us to see in that area. Our other thought based on reading other posts, and Rick Steves is Lucerne. Any thoughts you can provide on this would be greatly appreciated!
